Sunoco Plans West Texas Crude Deliveries To Gulf Coast

August 2012, Vol. 239 No. 8

Sunoco Pipeline L.P. has concluded an open season for the Permian Express Phase I project to deliver 150,000 bpd of West Texas crude to Gulf Coast markets.

For Permian Express Phase I, Sunoco Logistics will reverse its Wortham-to-Wichita Falls pipeline and utilize excess capacity on the southern leg of the West Texas Gulf pipeline system to create continuous pipeline service from Wichita Falls to Nederland/Beaumont, TX markets.

At Wichita Falls, a connection to Basin Pipeline will be provided. Due to the use of existing assets, an initial capacity to transport 90,000 bpd to Nederland will be operational within six to nine months. Full capacity of 150,000 bpd is expected by mid 2013.
